I am sad and disappointed that you now use a player with an unfree license and obfuscated JavaScript code.

the JS code that is stock jwplayer is obfuscated for speed of playback.
that javascript can be found and downloaded from http://www.longtailvideo.com/
the JS code that we use to customize/tailor it is not obfuscated.

the "unfree license" is to allow us to, for our viewers:
1) not hit jwplayer site for any analytics (we take user privacy seriously!)
2) remove the logo/watermark in the free version
3) enable the licensed-version "related videos" feature
4) enable the licensed-version "post to Facebook/twitter/email"
